Debating Workshops

Debating Workshops

The debaters were inspired by their first ever external coaching session on Sunday. 

Michael Dunn Groejian came in to give two workshops to a novice and an experienced group. Michael is former European debating champion and was ranked as the number one debater at the World Championships in 2016 - it would be hard to find anyone who knows more about debating! The less experienced group were taught how to extend an argument and make it more convincing and then practised shortening their arguments - seeing if they could effectively create an argument for or against single sex schools in 15 seconds! The senior group were certainly inspired by Michael and sat making copious notes as explained how to best prepare for a debate and how to argue points about morality and rights. The debaters left raring to go for the next competition!
